Canvass for Yuvette Henderson @ Doyle Hollis Park
Aug 30 @ 3:00 pm – 8:00 pm
It has been more than 6 months and not one official police report on Yuvette’s killing has been made public. We have seen this type of delaying tactic before when police kill and we won’t stand for it — Yuvette’s life mattered. The Alameda coroner is unnecessarily withholding the autopsy results of Yuvette’s death, which is key to the family’s ongoing fight for answers and accountability. PLEASE RSVP: This Sunday, join Anti Police-Terror Project (APTP) and SURJ – Bay Area (Showing Up for Racial Justice) in door knocking and handing … Continued

Injured Workers Advocates Speak Out Against SB 863 @ Elihu Harris State Office Building – Auditorium
Sep 1 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Injured workers have been under a vicious corporate insurance attack in California that has prevented them from getting their injuries taken care of in a timely fashion. Governor Brown and his supporters have set up an obstacle course called Independent Medical Reviews that stall getting injuries treated. Workers then have to fight to get medication to deal with the pain that injured workers have. Doctors who subscribe opiates are then blamed for a rise in addiction among California injured workers. The rise of opiate addiction among injured workers is a … Continued

City Counsel Action to Demand Justice for Yuvette Henderson @ city hall | Emeryville | California | United States
In February, Emeryville police killed Yuvette Henderson, a 38-year old Black woman and mother of two after she was assaulted at the Home Depot. It was clear from the different sizes of the bullet holes that multiple weapons, including an AR-15 assault rifle, had been fired at her. It has been more than 6 months and not one official police report on Yuvette’s killing has been made public. The Alameda coroner is unnecessarily withholding the autopsy results of Yuvette’s death, which is key to the family’s ongoing fight for answers … Continued

Sep 4 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
1990 American documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. The film is considered to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the “Golden Age” of New York City drag balls, and critics have praised it as a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America. Group discussion will follow the film. Snacks will be served.59442

Why Should the Bay Area SAY NO to Urban Shield? @ Uptown Body and Fender | Oakland | California | United States
Urban Shield is a county-wide war games, swat training and weapons expo, held each year involving hundreds of local, federal and international agencies including those from Apartheid Israel. The Stop Urban Shield Coalition successfully stopped the Urban Shield expo from being hosted in Oakland any longer. But activities still take place in Oakland, and the expo still happens in our backyard and still involves local agencies, local money and targets our local communities. Join us in a town hall on why we should all join forces to stop this from … Continued
